Review: Popeyes - Chocolate Beignets

Popeyes Chocolate Beignets feature deep-fried pastry dough with a Hershey's chocolate center, dusted with powdered sugar.

I bought six for $3.99.

As far as beignets go, there's are fairly small in size (just a tad bigger than bite-sized although you can probably stuff one in your mouth) and shaped like tubes. The powdered sugar coverage was spotty with accumulated steam causing some of it to take a paste-like texture.

My batch was fairly fresh and hot but not too oily. There was just the barest, delicate layer of crisping on the crust surface. Underneath, the dough was nice and puffy but was also a little dense and just slightly gummy.

The chocolaty filling was fairly liquid with a mellow, enjoyable chocolate flavor.

Overall, Popeyes Chocolate Beignets turned out fairly well and merits a try for some hot and fresh, fried dough goodness. They're probably middle of the road as far as beignets that I've tried go but the fast food convenience makes them mighty tempting.
